DREW

Get over yourself!

KARL

What’s it to you?

Karl shoves Drew, hard. Drew goes flying back into the—

6 INT. HALLWAY — NIGHT 6

Drew hits the wall. He looks down the hall—

SHERRY

stares at him.

DREW

stares back. His longing is incredible. Then he’s gone. Just like that.

SHERRY

shakes her head, confused.

SHERRY

Did you see him?

MIMI

No. Who?

SHERRY

That was him!

Sherry grabs Mimi and they head down the hall.

7 INT. CLASSROOM — NIGHT 7

Drew gets in Karl’s face, pissed off.

DREW

Everybody gets the “chill,” all right?

KARL

There’s nothing wrong with me.

DREW

Nothing a little decapitation wouldn’t cure, no!

KARL

The trust fall thing just freaked me out, all right? I’ll be fine!

DREW

I had it bad, too, once. So you know what? I got a Harley and, believe me, at 90 miles an hour down an alley, things
don’t feel so bad.

KARL

Yeah, whatever.

8 INT. HALLWAY — NIGHT 8

Sherry races to the classroom, opens the door—

9 INT. CLASSROOM — NIGHT 9

The classroom is empty. Sherry’s bewildered.

10 INT. HALLWAY — NIGHT 10

Mimi catches up with Sherry. So does Malcolm.

MIMI

You all right?

MALCOLM

I know who that guy was!

SHERRY

I could swear I saw...

MALCOLM

That was the captain of the Wrenfield football team!

MIMI

(to Sherry)

Please don’t go psychotic on me.

MALCOLM

Except he died six months ago! He got this really weird leukemia and died in three days! They buried him!

MIMI

(whirls on Malcolm)

Earth’s full, Malcolm. Go home!

Dwight comes over, brave and true. Malcolm won’t look at him.

DWIGHT

Something I should know about? Somebody who’s not supposed to be in school?

SHERRY

I could swear I saw—

MIMI

Sherry thinks she saw the man of her dreams in the hallway. And Lone Gunman here thinks he saw a dead boy walking. Please tell me I’m in a school and not an institute for reality-challenged people?
